We are proud of our position as an industry leader in fineblanking and other precision fabrication processes at Principal Manufacturing Corporation. In addition to manufacturing, our full service operation also offers engineering and design assistance that helps customers solve production problems and reduce costs. In the project illustrated here, we were able to assist a customer in the trucking/automotive industry to revise the design of a large sprocket, greatly increasing the quality of the product while simultaneously providing the customer with substantial cost savings.
As originally designed, this part was constructed with powdered steel. This material was causing some serious issues in the areas of integrity and quality, creating die breaks and fractures in the peaks and valleys of the sprocket. Our customer agreed to the change, and we manufactured the sprockets using our fineblanking and deburring capabilities.
Not only did the new material create better quality sprockets, but also created a total cost saving of $100,000 compared to the old material.
